Confessions of a Pop Performer

"Confessions of a Pop Performer" (1975).jpg

Confessions of a Pop Performer is a 1975 British sex-farce film.[1] This second instalment continues the erotic adventures of Timothy Lea and is based on the novels written under the name by Christopher Wood. In this case, the original novel was called Confessions from the Pop Scene,[2] but was later re-published under the film's title.[3]

Sidney overhears a band in his local pub and aspires to be their manager, not so ably assisted by his brother-in-law, Timmy, both still window cleaning for a living. They rename the band Kipper and after a misfortune, Timmy joins the line-up and many sexual encounters follow as a result. Unfortunately, Timmy's natural talent is more mayhem than rock star and disaster ensues of mostly the semi-clothed kind.

Confessions of a Pop Performer was voted joint ‘Worst British Film of 1975’ by Sight & Sound magazine, tying with The Rocky Horror Picture Show.[citation needed]

Pop Performer was the only film in the series to spawn a soundtrack album on the Polydor label, with musical numbers produced by Ed Welch, and credited to the film’s fictional groups Kipper, and The Climax Sisters (played by Diane Langton and Linda Regan in the film, although Sue Martine provides Regan’s singing voice). The album also includes music from Confessions of a Window Cleaner and in-character ‘Timmy Chat’ from Robin Askwith.
